Science of Nitric Oxide- What Nitric Oxide does for the health and wellness of our cardiovascular system, according to Dr. Rainer Böger, M.D.

Dr. Rainer Böger is a world-renowned doctor and researcherProfessor and Head, Institute of Clinical Pharmacology and Toxicology, Center of Experimental Medicine at the University Medical Center Hamburg-Eppendorf in Hamburg, Germany. Dr. Rainer Böger, M.D. has been researching arginine for 27 years and has written over 100 peer-reviewed scientific published papers on arginine. He has done extensive research on the ADMA molecule and the testing system to determine your life expectancy based on your ADMA level. He and Dr. John P. Cooke, M.D., Ph.D., (previously head of cardiovascular medicine, Stanford University and author of Cardiovascular Cure)worked together on the ADMA molecule research.

In 1998 Dr. Louis Ignarro B.S., Ph.D. (author of NO More Heart Disease) and 2 other researchers were awarded the Nobel Prize for medicine. They had discovered that the endothelium produces Nitric Oxide from arginine and that the Nitric Oxide is a signaling molecule which travels throughout the blood vessels repairing the endothelium and helping the vessels become more flexible.

Nitric Oxide is an endogenous protector of the vessel wall
Nitric Oxide
Nitric Oxide- is an endogenous (produced by cells inside the organism such as the endothelium) protector of the vessel wall. Nitric Oxide is produced by the endothelium (inner wall of all your vessels) as a protector of the vessel walls. Nitric Oxide also is responsible to repair the problems of the vessels, which includes returning them to a supple state.
  1. Vasodilation - Nitric Oxide increases the area of the vessel and as such increases the flow of blood to the crucial organs.
  2. Platelet Aggregation - Nitric Oxide breaks up the aggregation (accumulation of blood platelets) and thereby keeps the vessel clean.
  3. Monocyte Adhesion - Nitric Oxide prevents monocyte adhesion. The monocyte is created in the bone marrow and enters the blood and migrates into connective tissue where it forms into a macrophage to cause inflammation. Thus, inflammation pushes the blood vessels to get worse with time-nitric oxide blocks inflammation by inhibiting monocyte adhesion and thereby stops the progression.
  4. Smooth muscle cell proliferation - Nitric Oxide blocks smooth muscle cell proliferation (growth). Proliferation of these cells makes the artery get narrower, so that less blood can flow to the organs. By reducing this mechanism, nitric oxide helps keep the arteries wide open.
  5. Superoxide radical elaboration- Nitric Oxide protects against this process of damage to the body. Superoxide radicals contribute to the development of many diseases and to the aging process because of oxidative stress, which damages cells and organ function.
  6. LDL Oxidation - Nitric Oxide reduces the oxidation of the bad cholesterol. Oxidation otherwise makes the bad cholesterol get even more aggressive in the blood vessels.

These health and life style markers effect the vascular system. .

  1. Smoking
  2. Cholesterol
  3. Diabetes
  4. High Blood Pressure
  5. High CRP (C-reactive protein) is used mainly as a marker of inflammation. Apart from liver failure, there are few known factors that interfere with CRP production.[2] Measuring and charting CRP values can prove useful in determining disease progress or the effectiveness of treatments.
  6. Inflammation
The ADMA molecule is negatively affected by these 6 issues. Heart Disease and death follow if the ADMA is not attended to. The only real solution is an arginine/citrulline supplement. Your life style choices can change the ADMA in only a small amount.

ADMA is a pro-atherogenic molecule

ADMA is a marker for cardiovascular disease. The study of 3600 patients over 20 years of the ADMA molecule established scientifically your likely life expectancy. If your ADMA is over 0.8 you will have a shorter life expectancy than those people who have a 0.5 level or lower (a much lower life expectancy). The most significant effect on this outcome is your production or supplementation of arginine/citrulline. You can have the blood test done to determine your ADMA, and we can do it for a cost of $150.00. If you currently have high blood pressure you will most likely have an ADMA of 0.8 or higher.

ADMA affects all the health issues.
